WATCH: Taylor Decker catches touchdown vs. Rams

Detroit reached into its bag of tricks to score their first touchdown of the game.

NFL: Detroit Lions at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions offensive tackle, Taylor Decker, has been under fire for much of this season but he may have just won favor with fans once again. The tackle scored Detroit’s first touchdown of the day when he leaked out on a red zone play where he was lined up as eligible and had an 11-yard catch and run for a score.

It is the first touchdown of the offensive lineman’s young career. It is also the first time that a Lions offensive lineman has scored a touchdown this season—and the first time a lineman has scored for the team in a very long time.

Decker became only the second offensive lineman to score in Lions history and breaks the record for most single game receiving yards for a Detroit lineman.

The Lions trail the Rams by three late in the third quarter and have a chance to pull off a huge upset in Week 13.
